Ben & Amelia performed in the annual school Talent Show again this year. Ben was going to play guitar with his teacher, but she came down with the flu the day before the show. He still played on his own, but he’s also going to play at Assembly next week with his teacher (she accompanies him on guitar a bit but mainly just sings) and asked that I wait to post a video of that performance instead of his solo act – even though he did great on his own!
Amelia on the other hand is more than happy to share her performance with anyone who wants to watch! She starts off slow but picks up the pace gradually. Once she was warmed up, I think she would have stayed “on stage” as long as they would have let her.
Here are some pics from an art class Amelia participated in this evening – how to paint your own wooden mermaid plaque!
A few pics from Ben’s role as an Indian in the school production of Peter Pan last night and one pic of two of the cutest 1st graders in the audience…(3rd pic: #wakandaforever)
Here’s a video of Ben getting his award for being one of 5th grade’s Good Citizens (you have to turn up the volume a bit to hear):

I’m not sure what it is about this swing ride, but it is Amelia’s all-time favorite at Busch Gardens. She rode it 6 times back-to-back on Sunday. I guess she was made to fly.
Sunday marked our second trip of the season to Busch Gardens (they’ve only been open three weeks). The kids (and Alek) are in heaven, and I love watching them have a blast. Thanks to the wonderful world of annual passes, I have a feeling we will be spending quite a few Sundays there. Works for me!
Grateful for a fun, spring visit from this little guy (and his parents, of course)! And a pic of the little lady amidst her favorite color.
…and growing, and growing. Notice Alek’s shoe in both pics – same shoe, same dog, four months later.
One week since the last video, here’s a look at Amelia’s dance group’s final routine. Notice how she is beaming the entire time and even right after they finish. Born to perform! (Also, that’s a mom-made dress she’s wearing, love that she loves it!)
Here’s a clip from Amelia’s dance practice after school.
